Gorilla Gamer Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon– May 2016
Gorilla Gamer Crate is a subscription box for gamers! Their website calls it a “monthly, mystery, console specific crate focused 100% on video gamers.” My sons are complete video game addicts, so they were thrilled to hear about this box!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

We finally received a different card in our box! Unfortunately, it still doesn’t have any info about the contents.
Gorilla Gamer Custom Tee – Value $15?
This is the t-shirt that was included this month. My ten-year-old loves it!
KMD Protective Skin for PS4 Controller – Value $8.47
This was not that thrilling of an item for the kids to get, but I’m happy about it. Anything to make the controllers last longer is awesome in my book! Those things are not cheap!
Funko POP! Games Doom Cyberdemon Figure – Value $14.99
A very strange thing happened with this little guy. First, my sons don’t play Doom yet, but second, they love getting Funko POP!s to add to their collection. The strange part is that he was included in this package without the box. He was just kind of chucked in there, as seen here. We didn’t even know who he was until Ragan told me (thanks again, Ragan!). Very, very odd.
Gorilla Gamer Custom Mouse Pad – Value $5?
As mousepads go, this one is really cool, but I’m actually wondering if it is indeed a mouse pad. Could this be something else? It’s really big for a mouse pad, maybe 15″ x 12″. We also don’t have any machines with mice at the moment, so this is a (still really cool) miss for us.
Assorted Snacks – Value about $5
This month’s snacks are considerably healthier than last month’s! You know I like that! My husband is a big jerky fan, too.
Verdict: My kids really like their Gorilla Gamer Crate subscription, and I think they got some great things this month that they will really enjoy. I’m most excited about the controller skin, but I’m a little confused by the Funko POP! arriving without a box. The value of this month’s package is about $48, which just clears the cost of the box, so I’m OK with that, but in previous months the value has been higher. I really hope this isn’t the beginning of a trend.
